Summer is really upon us now, and people across the country are re-thinking their wardrobe choices for the new season. Why should this end when it comes to your corporate uniform? Get a fresh new look for your team this summer with Keltic.
We can’t believe that it’s now been a week since our fantastic three-day weekend at the National Funeral Exhibition. We are still sifting through and processing all your enquiries for quotes, samples and orders for funeral clothing – there are a lot of them! We just wanted to take a moment to say thank you very much to all of the friendly people who came and visited us on our stand.
A stab vest or more precisely a stab proof vest is a type of body armour that is reinforced with special materials to resist blows and knife attacks. It can be worn over or under clothes and is designed to prevent knife penetration. Having your security staff kitted with the best stab vests not only ensures proper safety and protection of your enterprise but also reflects better on your business.
This weekend we are attending one of our biggest events of the year: The National Funeral Exhibition. It’s a must for any funeral director. If you tick that box, then come and join us for a medieval inspired weekend.
Your staff represent your company. This is why they must be attired suitably at all times. For many jobs, jackets are an important part of workwear, however company jackets vary hugely depending on the work profile and industry one is associated with. In many cases jackets need to be equipped with specific features or comply with certain safety standards. If you’re thinking of kitting out your staff with new jackets, we are on hand to make sure that you make the right decision.
A lot has changed over recent decades with regards to company uniforms. Businesses have gradually realised the significance a company uniform has when it comes to branding. Here are some pointers on how to go about selecting your uniform for the purposes of branding.
Impressions matter a great deal in the corporate world – if you wear shabby and unimpressive clothes to work, you may be perceived in a negative way by your colleagues and bosses, even if your record is exemplary. In fact, many companies have made it mandatory to wear suits in the office. In this article we’ll explore the ways that wearing corporate suits can enhance the impression you make at work.
Some of our yummy Gingerbread Parking People are on their way to a Macmillan coffee morning after we donated a batch to one of our customers.
Out in every weather, on their feet all day long, School Crossing Patrols do a great job. And an important one, too. They keep our children out of harms way on the roads, and help parents rest easy as their children walk to and from school. Valuing SPC’s very highly, we recently decide to launch a competition. We want to find the UK’s longest serving patrols.
Parkex, the British Parking Association‘s flagship event is an important date in the Keltic calendar. This year was a tremendous success. Our new security workwear was an absolute hit! Thrilled with this, we thought we’d tell you a little bit about the day.
Keltic’s New Security Workwear
Well, we weren’t sure how the berets would go down, but it turns out they were a surprise hit! The new customer-friendly uniforms we have developed with NSL’s uniform working group, which will soon be hitting the streets on NSL’s Westminster contract, got a resounding thumbs up this week at Parkex. We debuted our stylish new high performance Ambassador jacket, our water-resistant next generation jumper/fleece replacement the Patrol Softshell, the technical moisture-wicking Patrol Shirt, and the hybrid combat/smart Patrol Trouser. I think it is safe to say that we have never had such a positive reaction at Parkex – not even for our pink parking people (who did put in another appearance this year, armed with candyfloss and gingerbread CEOs). There was even a qeue to get a closer look at the garments at one point!
The Next Phase in Parking Uniforms
All of our new security workwear uses advanced, technical fabrics, meaning that it is highly breathable and quick drying. It also means that by layering these garments up, you can also achieve excellent warmth without the usual bulk that is needed by less technical more old-fashioned fabrics. “It’s the same idea as ski-ing and snowboarding garments” says Keltic Director David Barry, “the layering of technical fabrics gives great movement and flexibility, but still keeps the wearer warm and comfortable. This is the next phase in parking uniforms. Garments designed by CEOs, for CEOs, giving them the comfort and movement they are used to from their own personal clothes, to work.”
The garments displayed will be available from the end of July. If you’d like a sample or any further information, please call our Parking Department on 08450 66 66 99. Or you can make an online enquiry here.
